Event Description

Auto enthusiasts who love a good bargain will want to head to Portland International Raceway (PIR) for the seventh annual PIR Automotive Swap Meet, featuring more than 1,300 vendor stalls and two-plus miles of automotive-related gear located on the racetrack.
The event takes place March 31 through April 3 at PIR, located at 1940 N Victory Blvd. Hours are 7 am to 5 pm Thursday; 7 am to 7 pm Friday and Saturday; and 8 am to 1 pm Sunday. Cost of admission is $5 per day; free for children under the age of 12. Parking is $10 per day. The MAX Yellow Line stops just outside PIR, and complimentary shuttle buses run between Portland Meadows, PIR and the Expo Center.
From memorabilia to manuals, coveralls to cars, gas pumps to go karts, and tools to transmissions, the swap meet offers thousands of unique, original stock, antique, vintage and custom vehicles and parts and auto-inspired items on display and for sale. It is designed for gearheads, but appeals to everyone who loves a good find and a great deal.  Last year, more than 15,000 bargain hunters visited the event, marking its sixth straight year of growth.
The PIR Auto Swap Meet offers a complimentary parts pick-up area that stores purchased items for the day, allowing consumers to secure a way to retrieve them; as well as a "haul and go” delivery system that transports purchases directly to consumer's vehicles, provided they are parked in the PIR parking lot. This donation-based service raises funds for the Community Transitional School (CTS), a Portland-based organization that provides important educational services to children who are homeless or otherwise at risk of school failure.  The past three years have netted more than $23,000 for the school.  The PIR Auto Swap Meet also supports the Cascade Sports Car Club, an organization of 350 sports car enthusiasts that acts as the caretaker of the racetrack.
The PIR Auto Swap Meet runs concurrently with the original Portland Swap Meet at the Portland Expo Center. For more info, visit www.portlandraceway.com.
